You can sim­ply go on a diet and join the near­est gym. But in order for the process of fight­ing excess weight and get­ting in shape to be as effec­tive and safe as pos­si­ble, it’s worth start­ing with a med­ical exam­i­na­tion. And here’s what you should check first.

Heart and blood vessels

Don’t self-med­icate! In our arti­cles, we col­lect the lat­est sci­en­tif­ic evi­dence and opin­ions from respect­ed health experts. But remem­ber: only a doc­tor can make a diag­no­sis and pre­scribe treat­ment.

First­ly, the doc­tor will deter­mine what kind of loads are gen­er­al­ly accept­able for you. Sec­ond­ly, it will help you deter­mine the max­i­mum heart rate rhythm and tell you how to con­trol it dur­ing train­ing. And, third­ly, it will assess how ready your blood ves­sels are for the addi­tion­al load that weight loss guar­an­tees, and will sug­gest the opti­mal rate of weight loss. The fact is that adi­pose tis­sue, which the body begins to process into ener­gy with a lack of calo­ries and high sports loads, it can­not sim­ply deliv­er to the right places. To do this, it seems to pack­age fat into pro­tein, thus obtain­ing low-den­si­ty lipopro­tein — the same “bad” cho­les­terol, the excess of which increas­es the risk of heart attack, ath­er­o­scle­ro­sis and stroke. So to ensure that the tran­si­tion to a healthy lifestyle does not lead to tragedy, be sure to check your hearts and blood ves­sels.

Blood Sugar Level

This indi­ca­tor is gen­er­al­ly worth check­ing at least once a year, espe­cial­ly if you are over­weight: at first, the increase in cell tol­er­ance to insulin is not notice­able. And if you don’t stop the process, it can lead first to meta­bol­ic syn­drome, and then to dia­betes. In rela­tion to weight loss and train­ing, this analy­sis is nec­es­sary in order to assess how best to adjust your nutri­tion plan and phys­i­cal activ­i­ty. Active sports help improve the sit­u­a­tion, but you need to do it cor­rect­ly.

Ultrasound of the abdominal organs

It’s not just mus­cles and willpow­er: the liv­er, our body’s main fil­ter, will also work hard­er when you start train­ing hard and los­ing weight. Tox­ic sub­stances accu­mu­late in adi­pose tis­sue, and when we lose weight inten­sive­ly, they are fil­tered out by the liv­er: a lot of extra work. It is worth imme­di­ate­ly clar­i­fy­ing how ready your fil­ter­ing organ is for addi­tion­al loads and what can be done to sup­port it.

Hormonal profile

It is worth check­ing the lev­el of thy­roid hor­mones, sex hor­mones, cor­ti­sol — this is the required min­i­mum. The fact is that increased or decreased lev­els of at least one of these hor­mones affect metab­o­lism, eat­ing behav­ior and the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the accu­mu­la­tion of adi­pose tis­sue. Per­haps, to start los­ing weight, you will have to start not with a new diet, but with nor­mal­iz­ing your hor­mone lev­els.
